A draft of the typeface I'm working on right now. Still have to do numerals, punctuation, and special chars. I'm thinking about including an overlay font for some of the common things I do to this kind of type (duotone, bevels, etc).
How's everybody feel about it? Some things I'm not sure about:
1) The Q
2) Whether to put bulges/middle serifs on the D, V, and Z.

Nice. The tail on the Q doesn't seem to go with the rest of the text... I would put the bulges on D,V and Z. (just my 2¢)
I'm likin' where this is going. I think bulges on the D, V and Z would certainly fit in with the rest.
Looks good so far, I love how tall the characters are! Wonderful serif style as well. The sense of rhythm in that first line in particular looks great. I like the shape of the 'Q' a lot, although I would love to see the tail heavier/more prominent as it gets lost a little at the minute. (Either that or test one coming out to the right, if you don't want to affect your line height).
I'd definitely put the middle serifs on the 'D' (at least on the left stem). I don't mind them missing on 'V' and 'Z' since those are shapes are pretty different anyway.
A couple of other things I noticed: I'd suggest bringing in the 'feet' of the 'W' (so that your outer strokes are diagonal) as it feels like it's stretching weirdly at the minute. The 'S' feels a bit awkward too, I think because it has a smooth junction at the top of the diagonal but then an angled one at the bottom. The 'N' (and to a lesser extent, the 'M') feels very heavy as well, perhaps try thinning the diagonal?
Looking forward to following the progression!
@Claire Coullon spot on, especially about that W. Definitely taking all of that advice.

Took some sage advice from @Claire Coullon, and glad that I did.
Took the W from Girls With Curls and the VA postcard, I think it's an improvement, yeah?

I'd buy it as it!
The new 'W' in the rebound is where it's at. Looking good! Keep going with it.
